  abstract = {Lat. uespillo 'undertaker for the poorest classes' is cognate with Hitt. waspas 'clothes', both showing a stem form *wosp- with further IE cognates. Close analysis of a variety of texts in both languages demonstrates the important position in Roman funerary practice of the ritual of dressing the corpse (performed by the undertaker), and the specific use of the Hittite term in the Old Kingdom as 'clothes for the dead'. This collocation provides the semantic point of contact between the two lexical items: the matching of semantic mark necessary for a satisfactory etymology.},
